I will admit the name of these tasty little treats is a little bland -- but that's the only thing bland about them! If you can think of a better name for them, please share. :) I was a little leary about these because I wasn't sure how they would turn out and I wasn't sure what to serve with them but I'm very glad I tried them and if you check back tomorrow you'll see what I paired them with! They were a HUGE hit at our dinner group. The original idea for these came from Tastefully Done - a blog I found on www.tastespotting.com.
3 tubes refrigerated pizza dough (frozen bread dough could also be used)
1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 Tablespoon Italian Seasoning
2/3 cup grated Parmesan Cheese
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/4 cup olive oil
Assorted pizza toppings (I made a variety of kinds using green peppers, onions, mushrooms, black olives, pork sausage, pepperoni and mozzarella cheese)
Marinara for dipping
If you choose to make pizza bundles with veggies, make sure to saute them before using them. Also, if using pork sausage, cook it before stuffing and cut pepperoni into smaller pieces - half or even quarters. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Roll out pizza dough and cut into squares. Place toppings of choice inside and close into a ball with all the toppings inside. Place into greased baking dish. Once all bundles are made, combine parsley, garlic, Italian Seasoning, Parmesan Cheese, pepper flakes and olive oil. Brush this mixture onto bundles. Bake for 15 - 20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with warmed marinara.
